Which week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen and testosterone rise
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Think it’s too soon to start thinking about plans for the weekend? Not for you, Week 1 gal! If you don’t have plans made yet for Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday, you may want to take time today to check out a local events calendar, call buds to see what they’re up to or send out evites for a party at your place. By the time the weekend rolls around, rising estrogen and testosterone are going to have you wanting to have some serious fun. And, if you don’t have any plans in mind, you could end up doing the same old same old, or worse, nothing at all!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Be careful of blowing deadlines, being late for appointments and missing meetings. High estrogen and testosterone are making you far more optimistic in your Week 2 than you are during any other week of your cycle. While that’s usually a good thing, it could make you overly confident that you have more time to get tasks done or get to places you need to be than you really do!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If (okay, when) sedating progesterone makes it hard for you to rev your engines this week, try this easy energizing trick: Place a vase of colorful flowers by your bedside or in the kitchen. Folks who did just this in a recent study reported feeling an instant surge in pep and happiness that lasted all day long. Researchers say our brain is naturally wired to awaken at the sight of beautiful bouquets since our ancestors took it as a sign that fruit or other food-bearing plants were nearby.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Your challenge today will likely involve trying to stay in the here and now and avoid thinking about past hurts, irritations and annoyances. Plunging estrogen makes you a bit more introspective, plus it’s threatening to bring down your mood and optimism. Together this effect could have you tempted to revisit ancient history. When you start to notice it happen to you, try to consciously steer your thoughts away to a more positive topic, such as something you’re grateful for, a talent at which you excel or a wonderful event you’re looking forward to attending. This will help you avoid starting a negative spiral that plunging estrogen can make so much worse.
